Why is he still starting? Like, would Billy Turner be a worse option at this point?
I miss John Jerry....
I miss him AND Incogneto
At least they weren't an embarrassment every single snap.
Billy Turner should have been working double time to get ready to play LT, but yes I'd take him any day over Dallas Thomas who is simply the worst. This season has the feeling of a death spiral, because Joe Philbin has lost the team. He is the walking dead.
I was just thinking about this. It really is amazing that after 3 years of watching this guy in practice, that they either think he is the best option or haven't found a better one.
He's making a strong run for the worst OL of the post Parcells era and that's saying something.
Did anybody have that play in the 3rd qtr I believe where he got steamrolled? Please tell me somebody does....
I wouldn't even use the word pancake because it was worse than that.....
FWIW, PFF has Thomas rated 71 out of 75 OG. We don' need to see a statistical breakdown to tell us what our eyes have been seeing since he joined the Dolphins.
The funny thing, is out of the 4 Guards who have worse ratings than him, of course 1 of those 4 is our other starter.
But hey, Dallas Thomas didn't give up a sack at Guard yesterday, he must not have been too bad!
Thomas isn't the problem, he is the manifestation. Joe Philbin doesn't start his offensive linemen on the basis of their ability on the field, he's got some other set of qualifications, some sort of proprietary blend of pluckiness, punctuality, cleanliness, etc. that determines if someone gets on the field or not. He doesn't want the best five on the field, he wants the five he likes the best within his idea of practicality.
Dallas Thomas holds the dolphins record for most gum wrappers picked up in a practice session.
Agreed and man is that such a bad way to coach a team....
That Brenner kid played well a few years ago when he played, now he can't get on the field for some reason.
I remember thinking the same about Dallas Thomas when he was a rookie and couldn't get on the field when our OL was horrible.
It turns out Thomas was actually that bad, and I fear the same with Turner. The OL has been putrid since he was drafted and he still hasn't cracked the starting lineup, I wouldn't bet a single penny on him being any better.
